Highline may stick around, and the building’s getting a makeover

In the past, the building was best-known for the Lamborghini protruding from its roof during the days of Club Lagoon. Where the club used to be, vegan punk bar Highline has operated for several years now—and the car is long gone.

That building’s about to go through some more changes, with new owner True Brands, a marketing company owned by Dhruv Agarwal, giving the structure a massive remodel. And not only will it not feature a rooftop car, it’ll feature fewer basement cars, too; the building’s parking garage is getting made over as a bar and office space, reports Capitol Hill Seattle. The roof that formerly housed the Lamborghini may eventually become an outdoor events space.

Agarwal and company are working with Highline on a way for them to stick around. In the meantime, Agarwal tells us, True Brands is looking for tenants on the first and ground floors. A Craigslist posting advertising the space shows three or four suites still available from 2,652 to 6,943 square feet.

Former tenants of the building include Castle Megastore, which has since moved to East Pike Street.

True Brands has been scooping up unique Seattle space. The company, which owns the Fremont Foundry events space, also recently purchased lower Queen Anne event space and business the Ruins. It purchased the Capitol Hill building for $6.35 million back in September.
